Lost The Receipt (MM #3870)
The mason minute. With Kevin mason, one of these strange things in life I'm pretty compulsive about is holding on to receipts. I've held on to receipts literally for decades and have great tax boxes, not only for personal, but for my companies, of course, too. But every now and again, when I lose a receipt, it will drive me insane. The other night my wife and I went out for dinner and went up to the counter did our order got the receipt, but I thought in my pocket and then went back to look for it and couldn't find it. Now, perhaps I laid it down when I went to go fill up my drink or fell out of my pocket, but I traced my steps back through the restaurant and couldn't find it anywhere. And I knew I could just go into my business account and just add it in there, but just not having one receipt, drives me crazy. Of course, when the credit card bill comes in, the line item will be there, and I'll be able to make sure to note it, but that's not the point. I am meticulous when it comes to my receipts. I pretty much save every receipt no demand. I go to fast food joints and get receipts. I've never had to use these receipts and they just stack up and go put in tax boxes and things like that. But for some reason, I got it drilled into my head years ago that receipts matter and I lost one the other day. And that doesn't happen often.
